A College Student Writes

Real Communication

No trace of inspiration and originality for either a creative writing or a creative speech course can be found in shibboleths. The student in either field must learn to see with his own eyes instead of following blind habits and to chart his ideas with individual clarity.

The Sermon on the Mount furnishes quick evidence of true communication. Jesus' words came forth as a consequence of his communion with his Father. It is because of this that his words carry such deep meaning, that in simplest terms he united in the Beatitudes the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, the righteous.
